Green Laptops

A movement that began with the One Laptop Per Child now is starting to see commercial distributions. Everex has produced the CloudBook (Pictured left) a laptop that is only 9 inches, weighs 2 pounds, has a battery life of 5 hours, and has a price tag of $399 approx. While Asus has been marketing the Eee PC (Pictured below). The Eee PC measures up to 7 inches, weighs 2 pounds, while having a battery life of 5 hours. The Eee PC can be found for as little as $299 (for the 2g model). One thing that greatly separates these new green laptops (besides their sizes) is where they get their applications. Both of these laptops use Web 2.0 apps for their base means of providing applications to their users. If you are familiar with JawTek and our ambitions you can see why we find this very exciting. As these Green pc's catch on high quality web-based applications will need to be developed.
